  • We've been here several times and it is a beautiful, scenic venue. However - the wine is overpriced, service is lacking, there always seems to be some issue with understaffing or computer glitches wit...  more »

  • Copper Dock has a large outdoor seating area beside a large pond; as it is self seating, you have to make an effort to find a wait person because they do not monitor the arrivals well. The food is goo...  more »
  • I always try to Be understanding but after reading so many other reviews I felt that maybe one more experience could help the need for more staffing and training. I was shocked when I heard my waiter say "I'm not a wine person" at a "winery." The wine tasting was also very confusing and I wondered if instead of quantity the quality of food could be better? Could servers bring out a wine flight? ambiance is beautiful but, I'm struggling with the idea of a "winery." maybe if I had expected a lakeside bar and music my opinion would differ?
  • Good food and wine at a relaxed pace. I went here to visit family. The beautiful location was worth the drive. Reuben was great with corned beef that was not too fatty. Free wine tasting at the bar helping me decide my wine choice.
  • We stopped here on our way to St. Louis. We had heard good things about it. The staff was the rudest. I am just gonna say, if you don't like the service industry this time of the year....KEEP YOUR ASS AT HOME. I was here to spend the afternoon, but after the service and the rudeness.....i will not be patronizing your establishment again. As the lady told me behind the bar as we were patiently waiting because they were busy, she said.....YOU WILL JUST HAVE TO a hateful tone. We had already ordered our food and we were with friends, had we been by ourselves, I would have left at that point. Your customers are here to spend their money and patronize your business, I am sorry that you would have rather been doing something else as you also told us. I WILL NOT BE BACK
  • Great time with great people! Come to have a fun time:
  • Copper Dock is a lovely venue. My photographer said this was one the most beautiful places for pictures he has ever been. The set up is really nice, with an outdoor pavilion for the wedding ceremony and an indoor reception hall that is only reserved for wedding parties. The price of the venue is very reasonable for the area and the owners cater for you so you don't have to search through 20 different caterers for the reception. All of our guests loved the wedding and reception and so did we. The only problem with Copper Dock is communicating with the owners. Many times, my text messages, phone calls, and emails weren't returned, so I had to repeatedly try to contact them. Also, a lot of the things communicated over email or text weren't actually written down, so when it came to the day of the wedding, the owner said I had never asked for certain things or I didn't have a certain number of guests, even though I did. They also have very strict rules. The contract goes into detail about everything so if they are upfront about them at least. I knew what I was getting into, but at the same time, I expected a little bit of flexibility since every bride is different. Figuring things out with the owners was difficult, but in the end, we had a beautiful wedding so I can't complain.
